Tennent's Caledonia Region League, Division One: Hillfoots 11 Dunfermline 17

DUNFERMLINE Rugby Club made it two wins from two on Saturday but their skipper has called on them to be more clinical.

Cammy Dunn said that, while he was pleased that they emerged from Hillfoots with a victory, he was frustrated that they didn't do more with a man advantage in the second half.

Having seen off Glenrothes with a bonus-point victory in their opening game, the McKane Park side travelled to Clackmannanshire to face a side who were beaten 43-3 at Caithness in their first match of the campaign.

Tyler Bell received an early yellow card for the visitors and, with 21 minutes on the clock, fell behind when good play from John McMurdo and Fraser Christie led to Daryl Lindsay crossing the line for a five-point score.

Despite a growing penalty count in Hillfoots' favour, Blair Nicol scored a try in response for Dunfermline, which Adam Fraser converted, after Lindsay was shown a red card.

Fraser then added a further try before the break to increase the lead to 12-5, with Hamish Nicol adding a third a minute after the restart, before McMurdo reduced the arrears by three points with a penalty.

The hosts were reduced to 13 men temporarily in the 54th minute when one of their number was shown yellow and sent to the sin bin, but Dunfermline couldn't take advantage, with the remaining points in the match kicked by McMurdo for Hillfoots.

"It was not too dissimilar to last week. We were frustrated with the second half but it was a win so we're happy at the end of the day," Dunn said.

"They were down to 13 men in the second half. We scored three tries and it would've taken one more score for a bonus-point win. We got a bit excited in trying to score that fourth try.

"More of a clinical edge is needed for sure."

Dunfermline have travelled to Orkney this afternoon, with the fixture having been switched from McKane by mutual agreement.

In Midlands Region League Division Three, Rosyth Sharks suffered a second successive defeat, going down 57-3 at Waid Academy FP, while Dunfermline's second XV were beaten 31-19 at Strathmore seconds.

This afternoon, the Sharks host Grangemouth second XV at Harley Street, with Dunfermline seconds taking on Dundee Rugby Club at McKane, at 3pm.

Dunfermline's third XV return to Division Four action at Hillfoots second XV, which is also a 3pm kick-off.

Meanwhile, McKane Park will play host to an historic occasion tomorrow when Dunfermline Rugby Club's women play their first-ever league match.

They're competing in the Caledonia Midlands/East Region League, and open with a game against Kirkcaldy.

Dunn, who is the team's coach, added: "It's our first competitive league game so it's very exciting. We've got a nice blend of experienced and new players.

"We're not just there to make up numbers. A few wins would be great and we've set them a target."
